Bruins ‘have a lot to prove’ in playoffs

All eyes in the TD Garden stands Wednesday night will be fixed on Phil Kessel, the ex-Bruin who found riches in Toronto only to fall into bankruptcy every time he has faced his former team.

Fans of the Black-and-Gold will ride the speedy right winger from the start, taunting him with the “Thank You, Kessel!’’ refrain (in reference to Tyler Seguin, who was taken with the draft pick acquired in the Kessel trade), all the while praying that he doesn’t once and for all untangle his bountiful scoring skills and scuttle Boston’s chances of a second Stanley Cup in three seasons.
